Topless coffee house reopens

VASSALBORO, Maine (AP) - November 12, 2009

Grand View Topless Coffee reopened yesterday after owner Donald Crabtree got the OK from a local planning board.

Crabtree's topless waitresses are now working out of an office trailer.

Crabtree's original location burned down in June in a suspicious fire.

The blaze came just hours after Crabtree talked with local officials about making his business more like a strip club.

Many in the rural town of Vassalboro don't like the idea of topless coffee in their area.
